Vorys Expands Nationwide Real Property Tax Valuation Team with Oregon-Based Tax and Real Estate Attorney Michael Mangan
Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP announced today that Michael Mangan, an attorney with more than 20 years of experience assisting real estate and business clients on a wide range of matters throughout the Pacific Northwest, has joined the firm as of counsel.
“We are very excited to welcome Michael to Vorys,” said Nicholas Ray, chair of the Vorys real property tax group. “While our attorneys have advised clients on properties located in all 50 states, having an experienced team member located in the Pacific Northwest will strengthen the services we can provide to our clients and further expand our practice.”
Mangan, who is located in Portland, Oregon, helps clients with property tax, real estate transactional and litigation matters. His litigation experience focuses on state and local tax appeals, exemption denials, and condemnation cases.
As a former commercial real estate appraiser, he is often able to settle valuation disputes without the expense of hiring an expert. When an expert is needed for trial, he brings his experience to bear with great results in both direct and cross examination.
“Vorys is a well-regarded firm with experienced tax, real estate and business lawyers,” said Mangan. “Throughout my career, I have focused on providing excellent client service and at Vorys I will be able to continue to do just that with a team of attorneys to assist our west coast and national clients.”
Mangan is a member of the Oregon State Bar Association and serves on the association’s LAWS Committee, which follows and advises the Bar about upcoming state tax legislation. He is also an Oregon State Bar Fee Dispute Resolution Arbitrator.
Mangan received his B.A. from Willamette University and his J.D. from Lewis & Clark Law School.
